As some one mentioned it can get dry. I've made this 3 different times, today I used organic peanut butter which has a little more peanut oil in it. It was PERFECT with the extra oil, so if you were to make this without organic peanut butter, I'd add maybe 1/4c. of oil to the recipe, to help with the dryness. oh and DO NOT OVER COOK that will also contribute to the dry factor. This is a great base recipe to play with. :o)

I am not a big fan of banana breads. I made this because I had over ripe bananas to use up. To my surprise I thought they were pretty good! I used the mini chocolate chips. I didn't have any nuts so I used extra chocolate chips in their place. You can never have too much chocolate! I baked this as muffins instead of in a loaf. That way it is easy to pop one into lunches or grab them on the go. I baked them for 17 minutes at 350. They turned out great! Thanks so much!
